If you are looking for a little more history, you can take another of the many tours offered at the Fremantle Prison. After it’s decommission in November 1991, Fremantle Prison remains as one of the largest surviving convict prisons in the world today. While being one of the most fascinating and significant cultural attractions in Western Australia, Fremantle Prison has gained a reputation for being one of Perth’s most haunted locations with many prisoners dying on the grounds. Their Torchlight Tour will entertain, and maybe scare you with sordid and ghastly stories. It will most definitely be a night you won’t forget. Find out more about Fremantle Prison here.
